    Anyone have any experience or opinion on these very low priced M4s? I realize you normally get what you pay for AND that I can save a little longer and get a more popular brand but I am curious, does anyone own one or have actually shot one? Thanks

    I bought three of the New Frontier lowers on a Black Friday sale, built the first one a few weeks ago, no problems, currently running every kind of ammo that I can grab through it just to see how it does. I bought the stripped lowers, used a DPMS lower build kit on the first one, some PTAC parts from PSA and a 16" carbine barrel and assorted small parts from JSE Surplus. Everything fit up fine, nice and tight and is running fine.

    I would only consider the hybrid (if that is the one with metal inserts) or the Cav Arms. Main reason is the lower is very weak at the receiver extension. This is the part that can break easily. With stripped aluminum lowers going on sale for $50 and regularly to be found at the $70-$90 mark, the polymer ones don't make sense to me from a cost-benefit analysis.
